First Line: A bluebird lives in yonder tree
Last Line: "there are no birds in last year's nests""?"
Subject(s): Cervantes, Miguel De (1547-1616); Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel De


White mist wings the pink-draped sky;
Gold clouds kiss the blue mountain crest;
Song-birds soar and mock their love with laughter and cry!
The baby smiles in silver joy
To the stars silent, flower-like call.
Mother whispers with tulip-lips, pearl-tears filling her eyes.
From an old oriole's nest she peeps.
I see the English sparrow tilt
Upon the limb with sun begilt, --
His nest an ancient swallow built.

So it was one of your old jests,
Eh, Mig. Cervantes, that attests
"There are no birds in last year's nests"?
